I think Nollywood is trying and improving with the kinda quality movies we’ve been seeing since the last 5-10yrs. Gangs of Lagos, Brotherhood, Rattlesnake: The Aham Story, King of Boys, Blood Sisters, etc… Great acting, sleek visuals and believable storylines, to say the least. Image
If you ask me, I think also that perhaps it’s high time we ventured into animation/fantasy films as well, with epic storytelling and likable stock characters that have the capability to blossom into cult-like followings and household names among both adults and children alike.
Take for example, Hollywood’s Marvel and DC Comics. I believe it must’ve taken massive lots of creativity, vision and of course funding for something like DCverse to be what it is today. You’ve got great fictional characters like Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Green Lantern,

Book proposals: What’s involved? How do you write them? Here are 14 tips from editors Emily Andrew of @McGillQueensUP, Randy Schmidt of @UBCPress and Dan Quinlan of @utpress. They’ll have more to say at a panel at #congressh in Toronto. A thread… 🧵 Image
1. Before you submit a book proposal, meet with an acquisition editor to form a relationship. This way when the proposal arrives it will have a face and a conversation attached. 🤝(@eandreweditor) #bookproposal

Derek Jarman´s "Caravaggio": Chiaroscuro, Baroque and the ashes of Pasolini.
#DerekJarman, was a bold and unapologetic filmmaker and artist, highly influenced by Pier Paolo #Pasolini, whose work he emulated in his career. 1.- Image
@Dexfletch 2.-His films, such as "#Caravaggio," pay homage to Pasolini's aesthetic and thematic concerns, while also reflecting his experiences and perspectives as a #gay artist living in #Thatcher's #Britain.
3.-"Caravaggio" is a visually stunning and thematically rich film that remains a highlight of Jarman's career. It is a meditation on the power of #art to transcend time and space, as well as the ephimeral nature of #fame and #celebrity.

The power to create reality lies in the STORIES we tell.

With major media outlets increasingly controlled or unaccessible to many, it's more important than ever to take control of the narrative.

Here's why storytelling is essential for #SBCWorks:
a twitter thread 🧵
Non-professionals telling their personal stories.

#Digitalstorytelling videos give ordinary citizens the power to shape reality with their narratives.

Their charm is in their authenticity and originality: homemade videos are intentionally subjective.

Smartphones with cameras and social media platforms like #YouTube/ #Instagram have made it easier than ever to share your unique perspective with the world.

1. realización por encima de la media 🇦🇷
2. guión pobre y con resoluciones amateurs
3. influenciado MUY fuertemente por un spot multipremiado de #JohnieWalker

Vamos de a poco 👇 Image

¿Intentaron hacer de @horaciorlarreta un @robertcarlyle_? Si, lo intentaron😅

Van las tomas de cierre del spot "The man who walked around the world" oro en cannes y van las tomas de cierre del spot de Larreta


La otra influencia MUUUY directa con el spot del whisky es la utilización del plano secuencia única toma sin cortar)

Intenta mostrar un @horaciorlarreta vivo, cercano y "sin editar"

Fueron a la segura: Imitan fuerte la dirección de arte del spot (nublado y lugar remoto)…

Hello Data Analyst,

Do you want to captivate your stakeholders and keep them glued to your reports?

Use these 4 story arcs to transform your storytelling skill. The 4th story arc is my favourite.
A story arc is the overall structure of a story while a plot diagram is the visual representation of the structure.

Story arcs can help data analysts to structure their data-driven stories in a way that is interesting and easy for their audience to understand.

Shall we?
There are different types of story arcs/plot diagrams but I will be discussing my favourite 4.

1. Rags to Riches Plot Diagram: this story structure describes the journey of a character/company from a state of hardship (rags) to a state of success (riches).
